We want to give you all the options available to you..
Note: Not all flag states require you to complete the Marine Cookery Assessment as each have their own criteria for yachts registered under their flag.
Here are some centres around the world who offer the marine cookery assessment and which flags accept the assessment towards the Ship’s Cook Certificate.
Note: these are not currently approved by UK MCA so if you do an assessment with these currently the UK MCA will not issue you with an MCA SCC but you can use them to work on the flags listed under each.
